The tailgate just before the last Zook Victory as the Gator Head Coach.

True story, I was once tailgating at an FSU/ U of F game and this guy walked up to our tailgate wearing one of those old cream-sicle orange Bucs jerseys with the number 17 on it. On the back was the name DeBerg. The guy looked very similar to Steve DeBerg as well. In fact he looked similar, because he was Steve DeBerg, wearing his old Bucs Jersey, crashing tailgate Parties. He made himself a burger and put so much mayonnaise on it that I got physically sick just watching it, then he bit down on it and mayo was all over his face and his Creamsicle Orange Bucs Jersey as well. Turns out both of his kids went to FSU, that was his connection with this game. They were both mortified by their dad at this party. It was Zooks last win that night as a Gator. Who wears their own Football Jersey after retiring from the NFL ? I mean other then DeBerg? - P.S. there is so much more to this story..... Just not telling it...

The idea of that much mayo makes me want to vomit. Really, it's fat in a jar. Eew.
